Facebook for Android Update

The new Facebook update is out and it is a great overhaul to its predecessor. 

You tell Facebook took the time and added many features that make you want to use their app. The two biggest updates come to speed and pictures. 

Speed has always been an issue with the Facebook application on Android. With the new update it is noticeably quicker. If you are having a little speed issue it could only be attributed to a slow connection. 

The update to the pictures is great. I had no issue uploading new pictures and the layout to do so is pretty simple. Viewing pictures is and adding likes is also simple. Simply click on a photo and it will pop-up into full screen. From there you will see a menu at the bottom to add a like or a comment.

Google Maps on iPhone

After Apple decided to majorly fail and take out Google Maps in-favor of their in-house map program. Guess what? 

Apple has re-released Google Maps which now features Turn-by-Turn navigation. I tested it out this morning and it seems to work very well. 

I will be honest I love my Google Nexus however if they start releasing a lot of full feature Google programs on iPhone I just might start using my iPhone a little more. 

Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.1 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

Below is a link to iTunes for you to try it out yourself.
